Brazilian dancers from far and wide will battle for samba supremacy at the 2013 Brazilica Carnival Queen Competition which this year takes place at Liverpool’s Newz Bar for the very first time. The competition – which the public are invited to attend – happens on the evening of Friday 19 July, warming the city up for the main Brazilica Carnival Day which takes over Liverpool City Centre the following day, Saturday 20 July.
The competition will see each dancer showcase their best routine, most dazzling costume, and of course their sparkling personality and energy.
The dancers in the running for the coveted Carnival Queen title are 2012 London Samba School Queen Yazzmin Newell, Nicola Thomas of Liverpool Samba School and all the way from Brazil, Jaciara Castro who dances for Copenhagen’s famous Carioca Samba School and Stael Martins of London’s Paraiso Samba School! Other Paraiso Samba School entrants include the UK’s Leila Heinel, Nina Appio and Angela Kwakwa.
Whoever is crowned Carnival Queen will be rewarded not only with prestigious title but also a £400 voucher to spend with bespoke carnival costume maker Posto 9. Liverpool’s Beauty Bazaar, Harvey Nichols will be awarding the winner with an exclusive luxury beauty hamper as a prize overflowing with products and treatments, as well as providing the make-up looks for the dancers.
